A Geologic and Natural History Tour through Nevada and Arizona along U.S. Highway 93, with GPS Coordinates is the latest in a series of guidebooks published by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology and is cosponsored by the Arizona Geological Survey. In this new guidebook are stories of the rocks, plants, animals, and historical places and events as they unfold along U.S. Highway 93 between Wickenburg, Arizona and Jackpot, Nevada.

The tour begins in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, travels through parts of the Mojave Desert, crosses the Great Basin, and ends at Nevada’s northern border. Interesting side trips take you to mining towns, a national recreation area, a national park, the northern edge of the Basin and Range Province, and even a spot where you can see evidence of an “alien” from space.

The new guidebook is being published in 8.5- by 11-inch, landscape, spiral-bound format. The work is illustrated with sketches, over 260 black and white photos, and 12 spectacular color plates that document features described in the text. Detailed route maps are included. A table in the back lists GPS coordinates that correspond with sites of interest noted throughout the text.
